Over the course of a career spanning more than fifty years, Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) designed nearly one hundred single-family houses. Aalto, who is also known for his furniture and glassware, worked in a unique style that blended modernism and traditional vernacular architecture.
Authors Jari and Sirkkaliisa Jetsonen present twenty-six of Aalto's innovative residences--from small summer homes and postwar standardized housing to large housing complexes for industrial commissions--built between the 1920s to the 1960s.
Jari Jetsonen is a photographer and artist. His works have been published in many books and he has taught at the Helsinki University of Technology and Nihon University in Tokyo.
Sirkkaliisa Jestonen is an architect and author and teaches at Helsinki University of Technology and the University of Industrial Arts in Helsinki.
